This vivid biography reflects the fullness of Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis' personal and professional lives. Born in Kentucky shortly before the Civil War, Brandeis rose to national fame as "the people's attorney" -- the first public interest lawyer -- and went on to become an adviser to Woodrow Wilson and a confidant of Franklin Roosevelt.
"So intimate that the reader begins to feel like a Peeping Tom, surreptitiously peering through the parlor window at one of this country's great Supreme Court justices. In this way, Paper produces a biography about a man rather than a legal legend." (The Plain Dealer)
